The City of Dayton has announced that it will start shutting off water to accounts with unpaid past due balances starting on July 14, which was previously suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Water shut-offs were previously suspended on March 31 by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. However, that suspension is set to end on July 10, according to the announcement.
During the suspension, the city said, shut-off notices were still being sent to customers, although those customers were told they could disregard them until the suspension ended.
In the announcement, the city urged residents to pay off any unpaid past due water bills, or to contact the city’s call center at 937-333-3550 for any questions or if they need assistance to ensure the water is not turned off.
